The Ibanez Standard SEW761MCW is a bona fide rock machine. This HSS axe has a pair of DiMarzio True Velvet single-coil pickups in the neck and middle positions and a DiMarzio Tone Zone humbucker in the bridge. These pickups pump out fat, high-output tone. When you pick it up for the first time, you'll notice just how easily the Wizard III neck plays. Everything on this guitar has been engineered for ease of use. The knobs and switches are located at the optimal distance from the treble strings so that they're easy to reach without getting in your way. All the way down to the recessed input jack and barely-there F106 bridge, Ibanez made sure that the Standard SEW761MCW would feel and play great right out of the box.
To achieve its biting tone, the SEW761MCW is loaded with a trio of DiMarzio pickups. The HSS configuration consists of two DiMarzio True Velvet single-coil pickups and a Tone Zone humbucker in the bridge position. The single-coils produce the perfect blend of vintage-style brightness with a pronounced treble boost. Whether you're playing chords or single notes, they're clear and articulate. The DiMarzio Tone Zone humbucker has a hot, high-output tone with a fat dynamic range. You'll love the way the massive bass response complements the sparkling highs of the other pickups. The SEW761MCW has a 5-way blade switch to unlock extra tonal variety.
The SEW761MCW is equipped with a roasted maple neck and fingerboard. Maple is loved around the guitar industry for its stability and superb vibration transfer. Carved in the Wizard III profile, this neck is built for speed and precision playing. Like all Wizards, it's incredibly thin and effortlessly playable. Ripping solos is just as easy as fretting chords, thanks to the jumbo frets and flatter 15" fretboard radius. The Ibanez Standard SEW761MCW may be known as a hard rock guitar, but its quick and easy playability makes it a great guitar for any player.
Sure, it's fun to pull off huge dive-bombs with a tremolo bridge. You can absolutely abuse your strings with aggressive picking and strumming, and you'll stay in tune much better than with a tremolo bridge. You can bend to your heart's content without having to worry about knocking other strings out of tune. If you're not one who absolutely needs a tremolo bridge, you'll love the tuning stability of the SEW761MCW's hardtail bridge.
